Some people have the habit of sleeping with the mouth open. This is harmful. The air entering the wind pipe is filtered by the hair inside the lining of the nose. When dust enters the nose , it is thrown out by sneezing. It is desirable to cover the mouth and nose by the kerchief or things available in the market.
This ability of the body , to protect itself , is the reason for vomiting. It finds that the food has been poisoned and so the same is thrown out. When germs enter the intestine (the hydroelectric acid kills many ), loose motion is the result, ie. cholera . The patient may die of dehydration. Plenty of water or saline glucose must be given; tender coconut is ideal.
